The Archer Street Challenge – London2Edinburgh
May 18 @ 8:00 am - May 31 @ 5:00 pm
In these not so normal days our wonderful Archer Street team have momentarily put the microphones down and the trainers on! We are challenging ourselves to run/walk from London to The Dome in Edinburgh and back. We are hoping this will be our first challenge of many and we are kicking it off on Monday 18th May with a distance of 1260km.
Encouraging all of us to move more and use this time in a good way, Archer Street are doing this for an incredible cause and have chosen to support The Trussell Trust. For those of you that aren’t familiar with the charity, it helps raise money for food banks and supporting these to support themselves and their families with food supplies. More and more people are being forced to use food banks, even more so during the current pandemic and we must all help where we can!
We know there are some amazing charities to support out there but here is why we are so passionate about The Trussell Trust. Last year the food banks in their network provided 1.6 million three-day emergency food supplies to people in crisis and over 500,000 of these went to children. This was an increase of almost 20% on the previous year. And, as the Coronavirus outbreak develops, more people than ever could need help but we need you!
Our target is to reach £3000 in donations. We have set up a GoFundMe page from which all donations will go straight to The Trussell Trust. We would kindly ask if you would support our Archer Street team on their charitable challenge and help us reach our goal. As always, in this more digital world than ever before, if you would like to share with friends and family or post to spread the word – we won’t stop you!
Each member of our team have committed to a number of weekly kilometres and we aim to hit our target in just over a week! We have of course ensured everyone will be exercising safely and continuing to be alert of social distancing.
Thank you very much for your continued support and we hope to see you all again soon!
